We’ve been pretty busy working with clients, and we’ve not been able to spend too much time on developing our own brand assets.
Today I’ve been getting tight on a Keynote/PDF proposal template for Spacewalk Agency which is very much inspired by tech drawing class back in high school where every drawing we did had to have a thin border and info box on the bottom right corner.
IE: Less is more!
Roughly 6 men take their lives each and every day in Australia. Grow your mo this month of Movember to raise awareness of men’s suicide!
Burgers make me happy, so more than happy to be working with Burger Me Up (previously Chur Burger in Surry Hills) on this Movember graphic for their socials!

BTS shoot with cancer survivor Leslie Lau. We’re (Spacewalk) creating a special 1 minute video for him to use on socials to invite people to join his new community Finding Space, a space from the busyness, noise, and pressure of living in the modern world.
It’s hard to lose in an age where coming dead last wins you a participation award.
My team recently got invited to pitch for a $30k job. Long story short, we lost it.
We’ve had a week now to digest the loss. Looking back, we went from; being excited to be working on a product that was good for the world, to putting together an amazing team of creatives which we respect to help us execute this job as best we could, to putting a hold on a professional photo studio, to submitting a transparent and itemised proposal, to sitting around for a week with everything crossed with butterflies in our stomachs, to doubt, to confirmation on the loss, to disappointment, anger and sadness.
Highly influential entrepreneur Gary Vee suggests that he fucking loves to lose multi-million dollar pitches as he gets to learn from each loss. With that in mind we’ve tried to get the client to open up and give us feedback on our pitch, if he saw anything wrong with it, and how we could have bettered it. He gave us a few insights on what we got right, but was a little grey about what we got wrong.
So where did it all go wrong? Well, perhaps it didn’t go wrong, and rather than sitting here post loss trying our best to gain wins from losing, maybe just realising that we can’t always win and accepting the loss is the best way forward.

Always late to the bandwagon these days… I’ve had invitations to join and connect with people on LinkedIn for so many years but I’ve never bothered with it. I’ve finally set mine up (it’s a start?!).

Forgot to post these! A little while back Dianne created a props album for Spacewalk (our content agency). She got Nick to set up a simple one light setup to shoot all the props in and I couldn’t refrain from grabbing some of the toys I’ve got lying around the house to shoot!
